This Festival is dedicated to the memory of Joan Court, who died on December 1st at the age of 97.

Joan was a true heroine in the struggle to free animals from human tyranny and was a tireless and dedicated campaigner for many years, even into her nineties.

Her life is an example to all of us to campaign even harder for veganism and animal protection.

The date of the Birmingham Viva! Vegan Festival, April 15th, being the nearest Saturday to her birthday, has been designated as a Day of Action in Memory of Joan, and we are delighted that the Festival can form part of this.

More information about Joan can be found in a tribute to her on the Quaker Concern for Animals website at



So if you've ever given the idea of going vegan a go
- or want to start in that direction - but need a helping hand,
come along, and find out how!
